      In other words, Muslims are exiting the ME in droves in order to escape their lives there and try to make better ones in Europe?

      Christianity is dying anyways, regardless of what's going on there.

        You are dying with no hope.

      I do think that Christianity is fading away in Europe. Just look at countries like Sweden and Norway, which are largely atheist or marginally Christian. It will be interesting to see how Europe looks like in ten years.

    Not to ruffle feathers here, but I think the growing Muslim population in Europe is responsible for the decline of Christianity because the ardent adherence to religious practices by the muslims is a daily reminder of the historical nature of Christianity. It gives Christians reasons to pause and reflect. It showcases the foolish nature of religion and the dangers of giving it too much power.

    I believe if we had as high a Muslim population here in the states you'd see the same results. The most visible immigrant population here is historically Roman Catholic. Somewhat different from the indigenous protestant majority, but the faith is similar enough to not cause waves.

              MM, you are generalizing. Not all muslims are like that, just like not all christians go around protesting funerals, etc. The KKK consider themselves christian, or at least religious, look at the the the things they have done, and still do. Greg

                I didn't say all, I was pointing out an unfortunate truth. You can't call something pure, where there are people involved. In trying to protect the purity of the system, many resort to force and violence.

                    They the guilty, not they the innocent. please excuse any miscommunication. I've met plenty of the "pure land" religious folk and I find them very enlightened. It is those that are unable or unwilling to digress or live aside from the idealism, in it's most clouded form that are zealotous in their pursuits. To enforce a decree to the utmost, in a viloent manner, it is they I spake of and no other.

        Not to the extent in Europe. I've heard that 50% of residents in France are Muslim (when you take into account the children who are citizens and their parents who are not).

        It is in our nature to fear the largest minority.  Stand in any city in America, look at the largest minority, and you'll find the most hatred by the locals for that particular group. Muslims aren't a large enough minority to gain attention. Imo.

        When they are, religion will be reviewed and it wil affect the religious. I personally think people will be inclined to be less openly religious from the back lash

      Can you elaborate? Currently the Euro is trading at 1.33 dollars. They've been having alot of problems lately, but dying? That's a bit of hyperbole.
